Rescuing Whites: White Privileging Discourse in Race Critical Scholarship

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Despite a commitment to decentering whiteness and critiquing white supremacy, race critical authors frequently “rescue whites” through a series of discursive and grammatical maneuvers designed to avoid directly criticizing whites for racism. When employing white rescuing techniques—i.e. absenting whites, personifying racial effects, and narrative bracketing—race critical scholars inadvertently reproduce ideologies more consistent with colorblind racism than race critical theory. Using examples from published texts, I define and analyze examples of each form of rescuing whites and conclude with a discussion of the larger implications of rescuing whites for race critical scholarship and racial dynamics beyond the academy.
